A very poor-qual AUD used to circulate that went:x1x
Bertha; Mexicali Blues; Brown Eyed Women; Looks Like Rain; Loose Lucy; Beat it on Down the Line; China Cat Sunflower>I Know You Rider; Jack Straw; Here Comes Sunshine; El Paso; Box of Rain; Tennessee Jed; Playing in the Band x2x
They Love Each Other; Greatest Story Ever Told; Row Jimmy; Big River; Ramble on Rose; Me & Bobby McGee; Wave That Flag; You Ain't Woman Enough; Truckin'>Eyes of the World>Sugar Magnolia.
The encore has never been known. The show became more of a mystery after a Phil jam became the most common fragment. It was assumed that it was part of a Truckin'>Eyes Nobody's Fault jam, until Nov. 2012 when the continuation into Sugar Mag was part of the 30 Days of Dead (and we figured out it was coming out of Eyes). Anyway, it's not a NFJ - the four descending major chords are a Feelin' Groovy (starts at 5:54), whereas NFJ (played earlier, in a missing sequence) is a blues jam in minor key. Light Into Ashes
points out that this was the last random Feelin' Groovy Jam before it became part of China>Rider.
It's a total tease because it's a pretty interesting frag and, given the setlist, it may have been a stellar, 4-hour show (there a four jam songs in the 1st set alone). Or not. There are SUPPOSED to be remaining mysteries, and anyway, it's Iowa - note that one person's parents went, were blown away and yet never went to another show
! So how the heck would we expect there to be tapers; especially when it was verboten at the time? The Alembic system with which they were touring (this is the year before the Wall of Sound) assigned Phil's bass one channel per string, and it sounds like the mix at the board split these into left and right channels (in the 2nd set frag). That does not necessarily mean this is what the audience heard from the stacks this night (for mixing reasons and quirks of that year's system) but it's possible, given pictures of the '73 stage setup. If it was working that night, it probably wasn't as distinct in person as it would be on a SBD.
It's hard to rate a show frag like this but we do have 54 minutes of B to B- from the 1st set (with a great Playin') and the must-hear 2nd set jam into Sugar Mag.
Overall = 4 Stars
